Media Director Debra Reid to Retire; Brett Parker Named as Successor


Our beloved media director, Debra Reid, has made the major decision to retire Sept. 30. We have relied on her leadership for almost two decades and will miss her greatly. Debra is a student of media and has kept her commitment to ensure our media department resources, people and performance are the best in the market. We will soon have a retirement celebration in her honor.

Debra’s retirement brings a new opportunity for senior media planner/buyer Brett Parker, who has accepted the role of media director starting Oct. 1. Brett has had the opportunity to learn from Debra, and we’re confident that his character, knowledge and expertise, combined with his passion for all things digital and analytical, make him the perfect choice as our incoming media leader.

As we all know, media choices become more complex by the day, making a knowledgeable media team with the digital and traditional tools to help us maximize media investments of the utmost importance. We are excited about Brett’s opportunity to lead our media department through these changing times and about the chance to honor Debra’s many accomplishments as she closes out her media career. She has assured us that she will be available to us for training and consulting, and we are so grateful for her ongoing support!
